Windmill Winery Wedding in Arizona

Jessica + Dale

A teacher and a UFC fighter. 

Sounds like an odd pair, doesn't it? But these two couldn't be more perfect for each other. I had the pleasure of taking Jessica + Dale’s engagement photos a few months earlier. We met up in Payson, Arizona in the early morning when it was still completely dark and really cold. We drove up to the Mogollon Rim where we shot in aspen trees, in flower fields, and on the cliffs overlooking all of the pines for sunrise. They then took me to an amazing ranch where we got to shoot with some cool old buildings and horses! It was a blast. After their engagement session I was even more excited for their wedding day. The wedding day came and it was a beautiful cloudy day at the Windmill Winery wedding venue in Florence, Arizona. This venue is so gorgeous. I got their early and picked out the perfect spot in a grove of trees for their first look. It was secluded and intimate and turned out awesome. First looks are so special and I always recommend that  bride and groom make time to do this. It’s so nice for them to have some alone time together before the ceremony. The ceremony was held on the lake at the “Boat House”. I love this area of the Windmill Winery. It’s really unique place in Arizona as far as wedding venues go and it makes for such a pretty backdrop. The sky had been cloudy all day leading up to the ceremony but the sun started peeking through right at the perfect moment before they said "I do". If you believe in signs, I'd say that's a pretty good one that these two are meant to be. It was a great day. I wish Jessica + Dale all the happiness in the world!
